THIS IS ENDOMETRIOSIS is an ongoing campaign to document lives lived with chronic pain and repeat surgeries.

After a painstaking six surgeries for endometriosis and adenomyosis, photographer Georgie Wileman embarked on a self-portrait series to capture her experience while she was too ill to leave the house or photograph others.

The work speaks to the brutal truth of a disease that reduces your days to bed sheets, hospital wards and pain killers that blur your reality.
Exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London, the powerful images were created to represent and advocate for the endometriosis community. Gradually, the series grew to include other subjects with endometriosis.
